Melissa’s love of helping others, home design and art history led her to a career in real estate in 2009 in the DFW area. Her experience lies in the luxury residential sales market. She is dependable, honest, hard working and knowledgeable about real estate. After living in Dallas for 19 years, Melissa and her family moved to Austin in August 2016. She chose DEN Property Group because it allows her to do business in the two Texas cities that she loves…Austin and Dallas! She and her husband both graduated from The University of Texas at Austin, so they both had the desire to find their way back to Austin. Her board memberships include Austin Board of Realtors (ABoR), MetroTex Association of Realtors (MAR), Texas Association of Realtors (TAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

In her free time she believes in giving back to the community. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Westlake High School Chap Club and is an active member of the marketing team for Honor Flight Austin that raises money to send senior veterans on flights to see the memorials in Washington. She has also volunteered with her son with the First Tee of Greater Austin that helps less fortunate children learn about how to play the great game of golf. She has also volunteered as a venue captain at the WGC Dell Match Play golf tournament.

Melissa has a great capacity to understand the needs of her clients and works hard to ensure that every detail of the transaction is executed efficiently and professionally. She enjoys working with people and that certainly comes through in the way she handles all aspects of every deal. She has attained a great deal of experience in the luxury real estate market of Dallas and is now doing business in both the DFW and Austin markets. She is passionate about skiing, hiking, fitness, golf and spending time with her family.
